A New Year to Look Forward To
I am very excited to embark upon a trip up the snowy mountain this coming weekend, along with a group of talented children's book illustrator friends. It's a Book Dummy Weekend, in which we plan to do nothing but lock ourselves in a cabin and work super hard to finish our ongoing dummy(s). I cannot wait to read my friends' stories! Thanks, Erin O'Shea, for making this weekend happen! (I will follow up on this event in another blogpost, for sure!)
Personally, I have several dummies in process, and I especially hope to finish up the one about elephants. That particular story has been brewing for a while, and this weekend is THE weekend to wrap it up!
Another event I look forward to is the New York SCBWI conference at the beginning of February! I have never attended the New York conference and simply can't wait to meet up with old friends and make new ones! Whoohoo New York!
Happy 2013, everyone!
